New Mexico Sheriff Drama Eddington to Create Over 300 Jobs, Boost Local Economy

On Thursday, director Amber Dodson, who is with the New Mexico Film Office, will introduce “Eddington,” a drama film that will begin filming in Albuquerque, Santa Fe County, and around Truth or Consequences this month.

However, A24’s upcoming American contemporary Western film “Eddington” is developing for the next A24 filming. 

Government Michelle Lujan Grisham said, “Our film incentive programs were designed to bring big-name projects to our incredible rural communities,” and continue.

This means jobs for locals, a boost for small businesses, and a chance to showcase New Mexico’s breathtaking landscapes to the world.”

It will employ more than 300 New Mexicans, 230 crew members, 59 lead actors, and 105 background talent and have an estimated $52 million economic impact.

The film stars Joaquin Phoenix, Emma Stone, Luke Grimes, Austin Butler, Deirdre O’Connell, Michael Ward and Clifton Collins Jr.

Ari Aster wrote and produced the film with Knudsen under his Square Peg banner, for which he also won an Academy Award.

Rep. Tara Jaramillo said, “A big-talent film in T or C is great for our local economies,”

It supplies jobs for caterers, carpenters, and camera crews, a surge in business for motels and restaurants, and puts a spotlight on the unique beauty of our rural communities, attracting visitors who might never have considered them before.

Added: It’s a win-win for everyone involved – the filmmakers get stunning scenery and a skilled local workforce, and our communities get an economic boost.”

Dodson stated, “New Mexico is established as a premier production hub where projects of all genres come to life,”

“The combination of our breathtaking landscapes, expert crew, and competitive film incentive attracts top-tier films like ‘Eddington’ to New Mexico—not only to film in places like Truth or Consequences but also to tell a story set in the Land of Enchantment.”

Since the legislature modernized the film tax credit to encourage further film production in rural communities, which kicks in in 2023, spending on construction in the Albuquerque-Santa Fe corridor and outside its corridor has exceeded $36 million.
